Message two in the Align series focuses on Jonah’s powerful and personal experience of God’s grace. We learn that, apart from grace, there can be no alignment of our hearts with God’s. Jonah’s experience of God’s gracious saving work teaches us three important lessons: 1.) Grace makes our story continue 2.) Grace runs as deep as our need 3.) Grace ends in glory.
The central question in the book of Jonah and in our lives as well is this: having received and experienced God’s grace, will we extend that same grace to others? We will find out how Jonah answers that question later in the series. What about us?
